Manchester based Mick Ferry is renowned as a fine purveyor of lugubrious surrealism and is established as one of the most sought-after comics on the British and International comedy circuit. One of the finest comperes around, at ease bantering with a crowd but with no shortage of first-class material, Mick performs regularly at The Comedy Store in London and Manchester, as well as being sought after at comedy venues across the UK and internationally. A supremely talented and versatile performer, Mick is also an esteemed member of The Cutting Edge at the London Comedy Store; a furiously paced, topical team show in which Mick continues to hone his talent for off-the-cuff, satirical and topical comedy, wowing audiences with his spontaneous acerbic outbursts and razor-sharp wit.

A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor-sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.

Formerly a BBC New Comedy Award finalist, and winner of Harrogate Comedian of the Year, Peter performs at clubs all over the UK and occasionally abroad. He has also written for BBC Radio 4’s ‘The News Quiz’, ‘The Show What You Wrote’ and ‘Newsjack’ and was the tour support for Alexei Sayle’s 2020 show, other acts he has supported on tour include Jonathan Pie, Jason Manford, Arthur Smith and Paul Sinha.

Sean Percival appears regularly at all the top comedy clubs in the UK. He has ‘headlined’ the Glee Clubs, the Comedy Stores, the Komedias, the Stands, the Last Laugh, Funhouse and the JTTComedy Lofts. He has performed in comedy tents at the Glastonbury, Reading, Download and Bearded Theory festivals amongst others.

Your MC for the evening is Rich Wilson. His “tour de force” (Leicester Mercury) performances have earned him a win for Best International Guest at the 2016 New Zealand Comedy Awards, followed by a sell-out run in 2017 which saw him nominated for the same award again. He's performed at sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival and the New Zealand Comedy Festival. An extremely in-demand writer, Rich Wilson has also contributed to shows for BBC Three, Sky Arts and Channel 4.

Rich is also the host of the wildly popular insane in the: podcast series; currently featuring Men Brain, Fem Brain and soon for your aural pleasure, Them Brain! Rich talks to funny and interesting people about their experiences with mental health. In the last year the podcast has been nominated for an award with Podbible and in 2019 won an award with JOE for best podcast with the likes of; Guilty Feminist, Off Menu and Films To Be Buried With. Guests include: James Acaster, Scroobius Pip, Heston Blumenthal, GBBO’s Tom Allen, Romesh Ranganathan, David Baddiel, Jen Brister, Simon Evans, Dane Baptiste, Darren Harriott and many more
